Do vegans have less stinky poop than vegetarians or people who eat meat and dairy?!


Question: This is a legitimate question--not trying to be funny. I figure horses eat a completely vegan diet, and (I think, anyway) horse manure isn't especially stinky. Since vegans eat no meat/dairy, do they have less stinky poop?

I think poop doesn't smell pleasant in general. However, different vegetables and fruits can smell pungent depending on the variety. Cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, dried apricots and beans can render some stinky gas because these items do not completely digest but bits of them + the intestinal cleaning from plant roughage collect in the lower intestine and ferment+bacterial (normal flora) manifestation.

I would have to say that different food consumptions create distinctive aromas that are equally unpleasing to the olfactory senses.

I would guess that meats and milk products could perhaps be more putrid smelling because it is decaying meat mixed with alkaline and acids and meats also take time to break down which can render the same results as the veggies previously mentioned.

You must consider that you are more likely to fuel a car with broken down cabbage than meat. This suggest it is probably more vaporous and pervasive while meat is of the putrid decay variety.


yes they have stinker poop


The answer is way far less!! I know ive got a juicer!! and i use it every day too!


i'd hate to be the guy that had to prepare and conduct this test....

=S


i have heard this is true.


It would certainly smell differently because of the lack of animal products in it. However, I don't have the necessary fetish to want to test our theory.


a horse's poop is not stinky because it came from a horse. a person's poop is stinky because it came out of a person. not because of his/her diet.


Yep, their poo smells less than meat eaters.


Yes! I was vegan for awhile, and then when I went back to meat, I could immediately smell the different in my poop. YEEOW I could barely stand the smell of my own dump! That was surprising, because I have to admit that the stuff had always been quite comforting...


Their poo stinks worse due to the pathegens in vegitation that break down inside our bodies.


It depends. If a vegan consumes a lot of breads and cereals, meat and dairy substitutes, and low fiber, then the fecal matter will still be malodorous.

A diet that consist of mainly fruits and vegetables (uncooked is best) will be sufficiently rich in fiber to literally scrub the walls of the intestines. If plenty of filtered water is consumed, and very little alcohol, after a week or so, fecal matter will be practically odorless.


I have never thought of that before. But I can tell you I am an X-vegetarian, while I was a veggie, I never had gas. Even though I was eating lots of beans, I just didnt fart. I thought that was weird and tied into your question so I wanted to share.
